I upgraded the backend of andybartlett.com to WordPress 2.8 today; will have to play around with some of the new features, as they seem interesting. I still haven’t taken much time to really dig into WordPress and figure out how it works beyond “Find theme that I like, apply it, write some nonsense and hit ‘publish’,” but it’s still nice to know what this software is capable of, should I ever find the time to really learn how it all works.
EDIT – lol, WordPress 2.8; none of the UI elements in the “edit post” screen work on either Safari 4.0 or Firefox 3.5b4 on my iMac. The “add” button for the “post tags” element doesn’t do anything, nor do the hide/reveal boxes for “excerpt,” “send trackbacks,” “custom fields,” “discussion,” or “comments.” Oops.
EDIT 2 – clearing caches and upgrading Firefox to 3.5b99 doesn’t fix the problem. This will be fun… Luckily the “update post” button seems to be the only UI element that’s functional on my Edit window.
EDIT 3 – the “visual” and “HTML” tabs work, also, as do “preview changes,” “change permalinks” and “view post.” That seems to be about it… “post tags” still not working, nor are the show/reveal buttons for the other sections of the post.
EDIT 4 – Weird; updating my Flickr manager plug-ins solved the problem. All UI elements on “Post” page now functioning; our national emergency has ended!
